Intense. Damn.

So, class is 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 15 days, in order to get an entire semester's worth of instruction in. This means we read approximately a chapter a day, with 1-2 articles a day in addition (a total of 50-80 pages or thereabouts). Taking graduate-level German classes has me saying "300 pages a week? In English? With no other commitments? Pfffff, easy."

The class has a lot of discussion and presentations, and we had an individual project and a group project. My group project is ok? I guess? but I had to wrangle undergrads, which is annoying. That's due Tuesday, and I can't start data analysis until the last data points are collected.

But the prof only counts the 2 highest tests, and I'm satisfied with my current test scores (100 and 96), so I won't take the third test, which is Wednesday. That definitely makes my weekend a little less stressful. "All" I have to do is write up my paper and put the rest of my things into boxes and take them to the office.

I'm moving out of my apartment, so I have virtually nothing in it. My furniture is at a friend's apartment, so I'm sitting on a spare couch cushion and using a lap desk. I've been eating TV dinners and things I don't need dishes for, using paper plates & bowls and plastic cutlery. I feel very College Student. Small remaining things are going to my office (cleaning supplies, what little furniture I have left) over the weekend, and Tuesday will be the final clean-up before the walkthrough, and I'm driving home Wednesday morning (staying with a different friend Tuesday night).
